Thank you to all who came to our Annual Event last night! It was wonderful to see so many of our colleagues & supporters!
Our Annual Event was opened by our brilliant CEO Claire Bloor and our fabulous Chair Claire Stewart-Hall who both spoke passionately about the importance of our work, our feminist ethos, and the frustration we feel at the limited funding available to provide survivors with the support they need.
Dr Hannah Bows did a great talk looking at the damaging impact of the myth that rape is about lust. If you want to find out more check out one of her articles here: https://academic.oup.com/bjc/article/57/1/1/2566697

The hilarious Jayde Adams closed the show last night. Her fun, edgy, feminist comedy was the perfect end to the evening!
The venue was kindly provided by VWV Solicitors and the wonderful The Prince Street Social who warmed up our buffet gave us bubbly at the after party!
